Professional floral designers will guide you in the creation of your own unique centerpieces to take home, using mixed gourds, dried plant materials, ribbons, and flowers. Executive Chef Pierre Barit of Teak Catering will share his recipes, while demonstrating preparation techniques that will set you apart from your culinary peers.
Menu items will be available for sample, such as Piña Colada French Toast; Coachella Valley White Corn Chowder; Roasted Pork Loin Roulade with Sun-Dried Fruits, Nuts, and a Port Wine Glaze; Herb Roasted Turkey Breast with Pear-Cranberry Chutney; Wild Rice Salad with Dried Cherries; Creamy Confetti Succotash; Key Lime Bars; and a surprise holiday beverage. Some of the recipes to be sampled can be found in the Rancho’s own recipe book, “Favorite Foods, Favorite Places.”
